Gobhi Matar Rasedar

A great Indian dish if your taste buds are ready for an overload of spices. Of course the classic cumin and turmeric to create a beautifully colored dish. This is typically made with cauliflower, potatoes and peas but I didn’t happen to have much potatoes or peas at the time. Even with the substitutions, it still tasted great! 18879105_1951856861718295_1340546373543526400_n
